This post is going to be pretty much a mish-mosh of stuff. I don't want to do 3, 4 or 5 separate posts, so it might be a little long!
So on Saturday I let you all know that we have a florist. I'm very excited to see what the flowers all look like together!!! I'm so, so, so glad that we didn't have to make too many changes to them to reach a tolerable price. However...after finalizing everything, I remembered that we're going to have a cantor (singer), and two people doing readings that should have boutonnieres or corsages. Well, we will have to come up with something for them.
On Monday night, Cletus and I went downtown (not too far from the florist actually), to find out about tuxedos for the guys. Cletus tried on a few different jackets and decided on a very nice jacket and vests. The guys will officially be wearing silver herringbone patterned vests and ties. He tried everything on (pants and all), and it looked fantastic! Honestly...he looked yummy when he put on his vest and tie. So here's the rundown...Cletus will be wearing a white herringbone vest and tie, the guys will be wearing the silver herringbone vest and tie, and the dads will have black herringbone vest and tie. He made an appointment for all of them to go in within the next few months to get sized and order everything! I'm getting so stinking excited!!! I did take pictures, but I don't want to spoil it. :-)
Tomorrow morning, we leave for my family Thanksmas (Thanksgiving and Christmas) party!!! It's so much fun when we all get together. I'm just bummed that my oldest sister won't be able to be there because she has to work. Either way, its going to be a riot. We will get to see my youngest cousin...he's only about 6 months old now...and SUCH a cutie pie!!! My aunts, uncles, other cousins, brother, sister, dad, step-mom, and grandparents (of course!) will all be there. I can't wait! The wedding in May is going to be the biggest party of the year because of how crazy we all get when we're together. Add in Cletus' family...and it's all over... After the Thanksmas party, Cletus and I will be heading to his parents for Thanksgiving. It's always good times when we go there. It's so relaxing too...which is very much needed at this point!!!
Saturday....now that's when the REAL party gets going!!! We're going to our second costume party together. Last year the theme of the party was heroes and villains. I went as super girl (see pictures on myspace), and Cletus went as Jason. This year, the theme is 'favorite tv or movie character. He is going as Moses (who'da thunk it?), and I will be attempting to pull off Peggy Bundy...yeah, we'll see how well that goes...hahaa
Anyways...I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving tomorrow!!!
